Have you ever been able to scan over the network like this?  I can't find any docs on that particular model, but not all multifunction scanners/copiers/printers that I've worked with before support that capability.  I would verify that it actually is supposed to be able to scan over the network and not just to a locally attached (USB) machine before troubleshooting further.

Once you've verified that, I would try unplugging the USB cable from that locally attached machine and try again to scan over the network.  Maybe it can't do that while a machine is locally attached...
